March 7, 2014; No Mobile Day.


Nick has suggested on FB, that we have an annual No Mobile Day. In his words, “On March 7 1876 Alexander Graham Bell was granted a patent for the telephone” Let us honour that man by observing his grand day as No Mobile Day every year.

It will at least make us realise that we can be without it at a pinch.

  1. No problem for me. I don’t have a mobile phone. Andy has one for emergencies up on the land, which would be a good idea if we had reception up there. Whatever.

    My mobile is practising already. it switches off by it self, has done so for several weeks. I think I need a new one and to change networks, the signal has become very unreliable.

    We don’t use our phones excessively and I often have days where they aren’t used at all. Picking a specific day to not use it would depend on what I’m doing that day and I don’t have a clue.

    I don’t see the point? those addicted to mobile leashing won’t snap it for the day…and those who are not, like me, don’t really need to?

    I’ve got a mobile phone but it certainly isn’t one of those new fangled smartphones – it can make and receive phone calls, and text(s) – I use it sometimes a lot – through to not much. A few friends – rare to make a call on it but apparently I can – something within my package…
